Channel A News Top Ten News reported today that the North Korean military has built a simulation of the ROK military services headquarters in Gyeryong, South Korea, at North Korean military training grounds in Yongbyun, North Korea, for military exercise purposes. Gyeryong is located just southwest of Daejun, in Chungcheongnam Provice. VOA broadcast the report on November 14 as reported in Chosun News. The location of the North Korean military training grounds where the structure was located was in Pyonganbuk provice, Yongbyon county, Goseong Ri (평안북도 영변군 고성리 ).

Cited by some analysts as further proof of North Korean hostile intent and duplicity, it is alleged that the target simulation was constructed during the period of improving relations and summits between North and South Korea. The viewers were reminded of the preparation of a similar target in North Korea during 2016 which simulated the Blue House during a time when discussions of "decapitation missions," by US and ROK special forces units against North Korea were common. The Channel A analysts varied in their commentary from views that the Moon administration was in denial of the North's true intentions, to references to periodic indications that major US-ROK joint military exercises could resume, the failure of the North to obtain sanctions relief and the recent US-ROK joint exercises near Pohang.
